Trauma plays a significant role in college students' lives, including in academic, community and interpersonal engagement. From conversations about racial injustice and heterosexism to campus sexual violence, we know that staff and faculty are eager to build capacity to serve students who may be carrying trauma narratives into and throughout their time at Boston College. This workshop will address what's happening among students in the BC community, factors of resilience and vulnerability, and best practices for supporting students' ability to thrive.
